Documentation Improvement Program Expanding

Thursday, June 26, 2008 at 2:08:23 PM

A few years ago we began a Documentation Improvement Program which recovered $1.3 Million in just the first year. The program continues to expand to more units. Rounding physicians will see Documentation Analysts and Care Managers on several units collaborating to grow this successful program. You’ll notice a Problem List in the front of the chart with notes indicating clarification when needed. Our intent is to help show the complex medical issues your patients have, to save you time by preventing post-discharge queries in HIM, and to impact severity of illness and case mix index. If at any time you have any questions about the program or a patient-specific concern, please feel to contact Michele Rando at 763-5487, or Michele Gordon at 763-5005.
